TOPIC: Timeline Question

Timeline Question 10 months 5 days ago #204308

Hi everyone. Quick question. I'm on ESA in the support group. Received my ESA50 today for a new assessment with a return deadline of 3 weeks. Can anybody help with what I'm expecting in terms of timelines? I return the form, how long before the physical, how long before a final decision, on average? I have a few surgeries scheduled, all out of my area, and I'm worried my support will be cancelled while recovering. I'm considering postponing everything until after this is done or trying to speed things up. Thanks for considering.

There appear to be considerable delays in the ESA assessment process across most of the country with members reporting delays of six months or more.

You can try contacting Maximus once your ESA50 is returned for an update for delays in your area.
